M., George, E. H., Tina, L. F., & Melissa, L. R. (2012)] Studies have shown aysymetrical results on cyber bullying vs traditional bullying. typically males tend to be involved in more bullying than females. However, rising research tends to prove that females are more likely to engage in cyber bullying than males. [Catherine, D. M., George, E. H., Tina, L. F., & Melissa, L. R. (2012)] Unlike typical bullying which needs to occur several times repeatedly to be considered bullying. Cyber bullying functions differently, where negative behavior can be posted virtually and passed on from individual to individual spreading and causing more damage to the victim. Catherine, D. M., George, E. H., Tina, L. F., & Melissa, L. R. (2012) In accordance to research, the participation and victim count is in much greater in middle school than in high school. Research has found a direct link between empathy and the deterrence of cyber bullying. However, other arguments have been made in reference to how empathy can also enable bullying rather than deter it. Females in general prefer bullying that is not confrontational. The concept of cyber bullying creates a more shameless environment, because they feel protected behind the computer screen. Most of the viral bullying that occurs is psychological and emotional. This is strategy that has been researched abundantly regarding females in traditional bullying. Females are more likely than males to post gossip online about others to hurt them. Catherine, D. M., George, E. H., Tina, L. F., & Melissa, L. R. (2012) Whites were more likely to participate in cyber bullying than blacks. While Internet users are statistically more likely to be Caucasian compared to any other race. Females are also more likely to be cyber stalked or sexually harassed via electronic mediums. (Qing Li) Females seen as less or more attractive than others were at the highest risk for harassment. (Qing Li) A dramatic example of cyber bullying at its worst is that of Megan Meier. Megan was a young teenager who faced emotional challenges experienced by most adolescent females. She befriended another teenager named Josh .These messages from Josh became hostile and demeaning. He told her the world would be a better place without her. As a result of Josh's behavior, Megan committed suicide as a result of these conversions and was completely unaware of the true identity of Josh. Josh was actually the middle-aged mother of a former friend of Megan, Lori Drew. (Beckstrom, 2008). Males are more physically aggressive by nature. For this same reason the level of cyber bullying has not exceeded that of traditional bullying for males. (Goddard, Connie) Goddard, Connie. "Cyber World Bullying." Education Digest 73.7 (2008): 4-9.
